When you're finished being a croquet expert, Nigel, a pound I'll kick your arse.
The way you play you probably will. You forget I saw your Barber of Seville, your singing brought tears to y ears.
Saw you in Carmen. I'll never forget it, but I'll try.

I saw this in Savannah (Film Festival), with a crowd that was averaging 50 and above. Everybody was laughing through out the whole picture, when I came out of the theater everybody only said nice things about it, I have never seen so many old people come out of a theater so happy!!!
Please see this film, NO MATTER WHAT AGE YOU ARE. People don't make movies for such a demographic, or at least rarely, this movie quite frankly made me weep, laugh, and have a range of feeling that I have not experience from any picture released this year!
Some moments hit you hard man, real hard, you might be laughing one scene and then the next scene you just realized that the 'thumb up' from one old man to the next gives chills on how life can end at any moment and at any time.
Dustin Hoffman, my man, you have made many people, many seniors of this country really happy, you have done what most always want but never will.
Thank You, to the cast and to the crew!!!!!
